Futurama Season 4 Easter Egg - Message from the Creators + Lots of Extras

Insert Disc 4 and let the menu play through. Dr Zoidberg should be talking. He mentions a mouldy egg salad sandwich, its in the fridge just below the menu click on it and you get a long message in alienese followed by a lot of extra features (Title shots never used, read throughs of scripts etc.) The translated message reads:

Alien egg

This dvd includes a specially encoded easter egg whichƒn you are now meticulously translating from an alien language because you have no life and are a compulsive nerdlinger. How sad. Its especially sad if you ƒndon¡¦t speak english and you have to translate the alien language into english and then into your own tongue and you come upon a word like nerdlinger which really isn't a word at all. But nerdlinger describes someone who would actually translate such a word. Twice. And thoseƒn of you who are reading ƒnthis translation on a futurama newsgroup aren't any better. We lurk on those newsgroups and we know what nerdlingers you guys are. Too. Of course. You¡¦re also probably our biggest fans. Which is sad in its own way. But. Since you went to all this trouble to translate an easter egg. We do owe you something. So here's a secret about the show. The writers. Producers. Directors. And most of the actors who worked on the show are all nerdlingers. Too.

The message comes up on my screen, but no menu follows. Do you have to do something while the alien language is up, or do you just wait? Or is this for DVD not in region 1?

Let me tell you what happens with a Region 1 disk. To get to the Mouldy Egg Salad Sandwich from the main menu, you have to go down to the episode "The Devil's Hands are Idle Playthings" and go LEFT. The sandwich lights up green. But if you press ENTER, all that happens is that the alien message appears for a short time, then you return to the main menu. Nothing else follows, and using arrow buttons or ENTER doesn't do anything. Perhaps you need a complex sequence of arrows?
